    Do those "pockets" on the outside then become usable, or would everything just flow straight to the bottom?

    I guess you could sew inside pockets on the removable bottoms. Maybe.
    Yes, they are usable. I don't need to unbutton them because I have small hands LOL. And yes, stuff does fall to the bottom, but I haven't had any problem 'digging' for anything, like my phone.

    I love it. I think I'll be going to Hancock's to look for that pattern. Was it hard to make? I've made quite a few Bow Tucks bags. Do you use fusible fleece? Good job!

    Sewnsewer2,
    The zipper that you have added really makes this bag wonderful. Do you have any hints to give us for putting in the zipper???

    Young or old - who wouldn't love it! You did a great job making it and love your fabric selections. I love this - thanks so much for posting it and the pattern information.

    Isn't that amazing!! I knew the pattern you were talking about before I saw the pictures (and I was right). All look very cute.

    Debbie is wasn't too hard. And I added a lining and zipper to mine. Took me a good while to figure out the zipper part because I'd never put one in like this one before, so you might want to go with what the pattern says and make the tab if you aren't used to sewing zippers. Yes, I did use fleece. And for the pockets and cover I used fusible interfacing, not the fleece.

    Yes, scream 1st, then put your thinking cap on!

    The zipper was a bugger at 1st. You'll have to do a google search, here is pretty much how I did it. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index...pic=8541.0;all

    Really cool! Going to find that pattern. Love the idea of not having to move all of my "important" items each time I change purses.

    Very nice and a very smart thing to do. It's the same concept that is with the Miche purses. My sister just started selling them so of course I'm having a party. You buy the purse foundation and then they have outside shells that you can get and have a whole new purse. I just ordered my daugther a zebra stripped one because she loves animal prints.

    Yes, pretty much except the Miche' is too heavy for me.
